This year for Black History Month, we reflect on the Black experience with the theme, Celebrate & Connect our Community: Asana’s Diaspora – Past, Present, Future. We’re inspired by the impactful work of our customer Hack the Hood, who is trying to reimagine racial justice as a path for joy in our communities. By framing Black History Month as Black Futures Month, we are learning from our past to build an organizational legacy that will continue to have a generational impact in Oakland, the Bay Area, and nationally.
We are thrilled to bring Hack the Hood's Executive Director, Tiffany Shumate, to our Instagram (@asana) for a live conversation with our own Fred Mathieu. They'll discuss:
- How Hack the Hood is honoring Black History Month with #BlackDataMatters
- The role community plays in everyone having pathways to success
- How Tiffany's team uses Asana to support their racial justice work
- What we can all do to support creating a better, more equitable future
